ELITE PROMO INC (EPI) is dedicated to the principles of Quality, Value & Service. With this in mind and to help ensure your complete satisfaction, proofs are provided for nearly all orders with few exceptions. We won't put your order into production until all pertinent details are approved by you, our valued Client! A proof is a digital document which shows your logo placed on the item you've chosen, or in some instances, a line drawing of the item in question.

For custom apparel and other custom embroidered items, clients are provided with a digital embroidery proof representing how your logo will appear when embroidered. Approximately 95% of our embroidery orders are approved with this single PDF document. In instances where a logo has complexities or we are concerned about the embroidery quality with a given design we have additional steps which can be taken to ensure you're satisfied with the finished product.


In addition to digital proofs, clients also have the option of requesting a speculative sample. A speculative sample is a finished sample of the item a client is interested in purchasing that is put thru a limited production run and embellished with the client's logo. The item is then shipped to the customer for final in-person approval or in some instances, such as time-sensitive projects, we send high resolution imagery for client review and approval.

Speculative Samples are an additional service and range in price, depending on the item as well as the scope of the entire project. Your dedicated Account Executive can advise specific pricing if you are interested in ordering a Speculative-Sample!
